Excess Owner’s Stories – Hereiti and Manutea

Let's introduce Hereiti and Manutea, an inspiring couple who have turned their passion for watersports into a successful charter business in Polynesia !


Hereiti, a female boardsports champion, and Manutea, a kitesurf pioneer and former F-One professional, have always been driven by a deep connection to the sea. In 2009, the couple founded Exp'air Tahiti, the largest kitesurfing school in Polynesia, which they ran successfully for 5 years.

In 2016, after the sale of their school, they started a nautical charter business in Polynesi "Herevai Charter". Their adventure began with a second-hand multihull. But their development led them to acquire two Excess 11 catamarans in 2021 through Sail Tahiti. Fascinated by the innovative design and performance of the Excess 11, they have found the ideal companion for their clients' cruises.

Hereiti and Manutea offer a complete and personalised charter experience. Bareboat or skippered, they offer a range of activities including fishing, paddling, windsurfing and kitesurfing, in partnership with several water sports and diving schools.

"Our customers, from families to water sports enthusiasts, particularly appreciate the comfort and unique sensations that the Excess 11 offers them. Passengers love the aft steering station, which offers an unrivalled sensation of speed during navigation. Moreover, the catamaran's comfortable, well-designed spaces guarantee a memorable stay." »


Hereiti and Manutea have great expectation for the future of their charter business. To meet the growing demands of their international clientele, they plan to expand their fleet and offer even larger catamarans. Their aim is to continue to offer unique sailing experiences while remaining based in Tahiti. This island is a destination of choice compared to neighbouring archipelagos.

By choosing Herevai Charter for your next cruise, you will embark on an unforgettable adventure in the heart of Polynesia's crystal-clear waters. Let the expertise and passion of this dynamic duo enchant you. Enjoy unforgettable moments aboard our Excess 11.
